    Metal Wolf Chaos XD is the game every From Software fan should play.

    Metal Wolf Chaos XD is a decent enough port of a cult classic mecha game but misses the mark over the Xbox original. That said, even if you are not a fan of mecha games, you should still give this game a go. It’s raucous and a lot of fun and finally it is now more widely available. However, as someone that poured a lot of time into the game over the years, I still think the Xbox version is the best.

    The sheer preposterousness of it all is not lost at pretty much any given moment, which is another source of solace.

    The game isn’t really supposed to be about anything, yet in that ambiguity it captures the specific madness of our present.

    Metal Wolf Chaos XD is a priceless artifact, a flawed gem the size of your fist that must be seen to be believed. Especially if you’ve got a history with From Software’s other mech titles. This is a critical link in the chain with no equal in the genre’s history. On the other hand, if none of that applies to you, hot damn this game has issues. The premise and the execution are wildly disparate elements. The pacing is stuttered and archaic. The mechanics at play are padded yet flat. I can’t fault that timeless voice acting either way, though. My thoughts on the game aside, hearing president Wilson and co. deliver their lines is absolute delight. Metal Wolf Chaos XD is a weird, wonky game you should almost definitely, probably, see for yourself.

    About time this game got a western release! It's a lot of fun too, though the game does start to show its age in both gameplay and graphics departments. It's an okay game, but the brief length and lack of any multiplayer options are the final nails in Metal Wolf Chaos XD's proverbial coffin.

    It might all seem amusingly camp watching it on YouTube but playing this outdated and clumsy action game is nowhere near as entertaining as it looks.

    While the gameplay is meh, it's so damn insane you HAVE to play it. Seriously, it's unlike anything else.
